Present/Future Directions 

The virtual world is challenging the definition of being human and being with other in contemporary nursing. Transcultural Nursing provides opportunities for relating with the other. With Technological Competency as Caring in Nursing (Locsin, 2005, 2016)  the realization and recognition of humanness through virtual presencing and virtual communion (Maykut, 2018) is made possible.
